Enjoy a 50-minute tour inside the architectural jewel of Budapest, the Hungarian Parliament Building. Home to the Holy Crown of Hungary, you’ll explore its impressive interior, including stops in the Session Room, the Great Vaulted Hall and at the central staircase. Soak up the history behind the walls of Hungary’s largest building as your guide provides historical and anecdotal commentary.

  • Interior visit of Budapest Parliament, home of the Holy Hungarian Crown
  • See the impressive staircase, Session Room and Great Vaulted Hall
  • Pick-up from central Budapest hotels
Adorned with white neo-gothic turrets and arches, the Parliament Building has become one of Budapest’s most famous landmarks. The structure was built between 1885 and 1902 along the Danube and was, for a time, the largest parliamentary building in the world. With 691 rooms and staircases stretching for more than 12 miles (20 kilometers), the building is topped by a dome that sits 226 feet (69 meters) high in the sky.
Your tour will begin with pickup from your hotel by your guide. After being transported to the building, you’ll be led inside to explore architectural highlights such as the Great Vaulted Hall and the Session Room. Feel free to ask questions as your guide provides historical commentary. Your tour will conclude outside of the Parliament building.

Although this does not probably come up on most people's lists as a great tour stop, it is a must see in Budapest. I have done it several times and enjoyed it each time.

The tour was 45 minutes. It was interesting. If I had to do it again I'd book in country. Viator provided hotel pick-up and drop off--that's it--we met our Hungarian tour guide who gave us the tour of Parliament at a local tour office. Viator's Terms and Conditions are misleading as they do not mention that you may have to be very flexible. Our tour was cancelled/rescheduled three times and one, in our party of three, was unable to make the tour. Holiday time is precious and having to reschedule three times was a nuisance at best. Can't recommend this service as they don't provide service.

Interesting tour, but what you are getting by booking through this tour is a taxi ride from your hotel, and some waiting around. Unless availability is different, go direct and walk/taxi yourself.

This tour was a scam and completely unnecessary. The parliament is definitely worth seeing but there is no reason to use this tour. All tours are conducted by parliament personnel only. This is not a personal tour by your guide. We paid 50 per person for transportation to the parliament and entrance ticket and nothing else. The tour guide was completely useless...gave us no information. She simply escorted into the parliament building and handed out our tickets.

I could have taken a taxi to the parliament for approximately 15 for three people and bought my tickets in advance online for 25 each for a total of 30 per person as opposed to the 50 per person on this tour. The only reason to buy this tour is if you have no ability to take a taxi to the parliament. The tour description is misleading in that the tour is conducted by parliament personal not by the tour guide who escorted us in and there is no one from the tour waiting for us at the end.

Another great tour. Crowded at the Parliament House, but our tour guide hustled us through the crowds and we saw the entire building in a reasonable time. The building was impressive and well worth a tour if you have never seen it before.

Amazing building. The tour guide was very thorough and enjoyable to listen to. A wonder how any work gets done in a building so beautiful.

The tour picked us up at the hotel. They took us to another hotel for consolidation. Then we took a large bus about 1 mile to the location. When we got to the parliament building we learned we could have saved all of the shuttles and about 60 of the cost by just walking to the building and buying our own tickets. Viator did not even provide the guide of the parliament building, they just shuttled us and bought ticket for the tour we could have done by walking to the ticket desk ourselves. After all our Viator tours this was an absolute waste!
